The Guild of Fine Food has awarded boutique Irish wholefoods brand Homespun Two Stars at the 2020 Great Taste Awards, the world’s most prestigious Fine Food Awards. Homespun received One Star for its Pecan & Cranberry Quinoa Crunch and One Star for its Gojiberry Cashew & Coconut Quinoa Crunch granolas – which are handmade in West Cork.
“As we contend with the challenges posed by Covid-19, these awards feel like an endorsement of our mission to create healthy innovative foods people just love the taste of. And with our new online store on homespun.ie which ships nationally and internationally, we’re able to fulfil orders from shoppers who discover our brand as a result of the Great Taste Awards.” – Erica Sheehan, Founder, Homespun
The judges praised the products, commenting on their “attractive and clever combination of ingredients” and commended the range for being “put together with thought and made with care” describing Homespun’s granolas as “delicious”, “healthy”, “fun” and “vibrant” concluding that they “might justify a second star in the future“.
Homespun has expanded its range in the past month with the launch of its new CHICORY ROOT SYRUP, a low sugar, low GI vegan honey alternative. Homespun products retail in Supervalu, in independent retailers and online at www.homespun.ie
